Eilean Ban Trust

Charity description

Eilean Ban Trust logo
The aim of the Trust is to keep the island of Eilean Bàn in community ownership with a view to emphasizing its associated heritage, and to continue a program of environmental and conservation measures.

Situated between Kyleakin on the Isle of Skye and Kyle of Lochalsh on mainland Scotland, Eilean Bàn ('White Island') is a six-acre nature haven nestling below the Skye road bridge that spans the island. Originally home just to the lighthouse keepers and their families, it later became the residence of the author and naturalist, Gavin Maxwell.
Although internationally known for its association with Maxwell and with otters, Eilean Bàn supports a wealth of wildlife and natural heritage of both local and national importance. Nature trails (suitable for wheelchair users) wind around the island leading to different points of interest, including the award winning wildlife hide, a viewing platform and a sensory garden.

Charity No: SC029021
